Metroid II manualEdit
"Samus will not receive any damage even if she touches them. Look closely for them, as they have a tendency to conceal themselves."
- It is unknown if the Flitt species was infected by the X Parasites, as Samus never encountered any Flitt-X in Metroid Fusion. The Yamebas are similar creatures, though they are more likely related to Meboids.
- Flitts do not appear in Metroid: Samus Returns.
